© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 4-24 Bayes’s Theorem Using Contingency Table Fifty percent of borrowers repaid their loans. Out of those who repaid, 40% had a college degree. Ten percent of those who defaulted had a college degree. What is the probability that a randomly selected borrower who has a college degree will repay the loan?

27
© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 4-27 Discrete Random Variable Discrete random variable Obtained by counting (1, 2, 3, etc.) Usually a finite number of different values e.g.: Toss a coin five times; count the number of tails (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 times)

Chap 4-37 Binomial Probability Distribution ‘n’ identical trials e.g.: 15 tosses of a coin; ten light bulbs taken from a warehouse Two mutually exclusive outcomes on each trials e.g.: Head or tail in each toss of a coin; defective or not defective light bulb Trials are independent The outcome of one trial does not affect the outcome of the other

38

Chap 4-42 Poisson Distribution Poisson Process: Discrete events in an “interval” The probability of One Success in an interval is stable The probability of More than One Success in this interval is 0 The probability of success is independent from interval to interval e.g.: number of customers arriving in 15 minutes e.g.: number of defects per case of light bulbs PXx x x (| ! e -
